Our only display at the present time is at the La Porte Library and anyone wanting to display a work of art, please contact Don Grott as he is changing some out.
There are a couple of inquiries on anyone interested in teaching a class. Please think about doing this. The Michigan City Art League is also looking for someone to teach a class starting in March and going into May. Please contact Tom K for doing this.
Mary K will contact Rita M for updating our webpage of members. If you can, please take some photos of your work along with a photo of yourself and a bio that can be put on your page. We would like everyone to have something on their page. Email your photos and info to Rita Marlow at firstname.lastname@example.org Those without email please gather your info and give it to Mary K.

Laura Krentz was involved in a fundraiser for Rhetts syndrome at the Fish Lake Conservation Club with 35-40 people that painted a close-up of Santa. Wine and good food was served. Tom K suggested we do something like this and Tom, Laura and Peggy Michaels will be the committee for brainstorming this. “Toasting the Arts” was a suggested name for it and Don Grott has offered to make easels available for this.
